I can only attest to the new render canvas protocol, which you can use by
implementing this on your component,


Once you do that, here's what you can do to create an image button,

(html imageButton)
  url: (self pictures addToPath: 'login');
  callback: [self login];
  text: 'Login'

Hope this helps,

Subject: [Seaside] Image for form submission

I'd like to use an image to submit a form---reall, to call the #login
method on self. The image ilives at a fixed URL. The HTML I'm trying
to mimic is

<input id="btnLogin" type="image" src="http://.../foo.gif"
class="btnImage" value="Log In" />

If I wanted to use a text submit button, I would use
    html submitButtonOn: #login of: self.

I don't think that
    html inputWithType: 'image' named: ...
will work for me because then it won't call the #login method, will it?

I've checked my Seaside mailing list archves and Googled, and haven't
been able to find an answer one way or another.

Is it possible, or not? If so, can someone point me to documentation
or post a code snippet? Thank you.
